  • This event has passed.

Our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, and visitors. In response to concerns around limiting the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to close the Museum to the public temporarily effective at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 13, 2020. This closure will remain effective until further notice. As the stewards of a public art collection, we are proud to help protect our community. We hope to reschedule many of the postponed events and programs later this year and we look forward to welcoming you back in the galleries soon.

The Colorado Symphony has decided to cancel this performance with the intention of rescheduling at a later time.

The Colorado Symphony presents its debut collaboration with CSM. Music Director Brett Mitchell guides you through a program of contemporary works and will premiere a CSM-commissioned piece by James Clarke during the evening’s program. Massive areas of color; jagged, flame-like shapes; strange shadows; echoes: These are our experiences of Clyfford Still paintings. How would this vision sound if it became music? Clarke’s new work performed by the Colorado Symphony is a kindred spirit with Still’s art–a meeting of minds as two art forms explode together.
